Melbourne Australia

Hi all, greetings!

I'm Antony from Melbourne - been using Linux for about ten years.  Ubuntu of course, then Arch briefly, Openbox (I think it was called), Debian (at work in embedded software land), Crunchbang, Ubuntu again briefly when #! went bellyup, then #!++, now happily at BL.   

Still love the simplicity, fast boot time, key bindings and elegance.

Keep up the good work!

Re: Melbourne Australia

Hi Antony, Welcome on board!
Very nice background and interesting adventures in different distros.

All distro's you've noted have their positive features and are valid for many users. I do not know much about #!++ But others are my favorites at different times.

Glad you've found BunsenLabs, hope you enjoy!

Re: Melbourne Australia

Hey guys, I'm back! Played with BL on a Lenovo Thinkpad for a couple of years - tried a few distros but always came back to BL.  Just recently was given an old 2012 Macbook Pro and after a few false starts managed to get BL working almost perfectly on it.  Needed this forum to solve a few issues, particularly to get the HDA Intel video driver working - thanks @spacex!

Re: Melbourne Australia

Welcome back phuturism!

I am curious — what motorcycles do you like?

I like naked sports bikes, usually 'cos I crashed them and broke the fairing devil

Unfortunately I've been stuck on lowly despatch nails for the past fifteen years or so but I do dream of getting on something fast again some day.

Re: Melbourne Australia

Hi HOAS!  Yeah, I like the nakeds too, I had a streetfighter which was originally a fully-fared 1997 kawasaki 700 ninja.   These days I've slowed down a bit - I usually have one naked roadbike (something like a Yamaha FZ8, but I don't have one at the moment) and I always have an adventure/dual sport bike.  My current one is a Yam XT660, see pic!

I've worked as a despatch rider (in Central London) for the last fifteen years and I traded in my gorgeous Cagiva Raptor 996 for a series of, erm, slightly less desirable company bikes:

  • BMW R850R, last of the 5-speed models and first of the 6-speed, the latter from brand new, which was nice but still sloooooooooow

  • Honda Bros 400, the absolute worst bike I have ever ridden, bar none, a complete shed

  • Honda CB500, both naked & semi-faired, the original twin-shock version, superb bike at "normal" speeds

  • Honda CB400 Super Four, even nicer than the above, I might buy one of these myself

  • Honda CBF600N, both carburetted and fuel-injected versions, my current steed: great for the job but very dull indeed

Not terrible bikes by any means (apart from the Bros) but not at all fast by the standards of today's 200bhp+ monsters, for which I would gladly trade my eternal soul devil
